This is stand-up comedy with a difference. This is stand-up comedy with no talking, drama with no acting and punch lines with no words, and it must be seen to be believed!
Formerly known as The Boy with Tape on His Face, now simply Tape Face, the mysterious comedian conjures uproarious & moving tableaux using only the most everyday of objects and the most popular of songs.
Along with sold-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe for four years in a row, four sold-out UK tours and a smash-hit run in London’s West End, Tape Face has performed around the world, receiving critical acclaim in the likes of New Zealand, South Africa and Australia. You may have also seen him on The Royal Variety Performance (ITV), The Comedy Prom with Tim Minchin (BBC2) or The John Bishop Show (BBC1).
This year promises to be a bigger, brighter and more spectacular re-imagining of Tape Face’s unique and special brand of silent comedy. Endlessly inventive and hysterically funny, this is comedy made for everyone. Be prepared to get involved and enraptured as you step inside a comedy world unlike any other. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and when it’s all over…you’ll be completely lost for words.
Tape Face joins a stellar line-up of comedy at Tyne Theatre & Opera House, as the theatre becomes the go-to venue in Newcastle upon Tyne for some of the best stand-up comedians around. Having recently announced a tenth Sarah Millican show for 2016, the next comedian to the take the stage is local funnyman Gavin Webster on May 13th, with Joe Lycett, Nina Conti and Romesh Ranganathan all set to take to the stage of the beautiful Grade 1 listed Victorian building later this year.
